“A good choice in the centre of Zurich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

We actually ate outside as the weather was warm so did not get to see what the inside of the restaurant was like but it is very well rated by swiss local residents. There is a slight asian mix to a traditional swiss menu with an excellent spicy soup with prawns as a starter as well as an advocado tartare. The veal Zurcher art is supposed to be one of the best in town which we would agree with albeit their was perhaps too many mushrooms and not enough veal. The veal shank was average at best as it was served off the none and was quite dry as was the potato. There is a good diverse well priced wine list for this part of Zurich. Overall definitely worth a visit

“Great restaurant. A gem in Zurich!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013 via mobile

Only having 6 hours in Zurich on layover, I wanted Swiss food and I wanted it done right. This restaurant did not disappoint! The food was only bested by the service which was impeccable. Will definitely come back.

“Beautiful setting for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013 via mobile

Managed to sneak in just before they stopped serving lunch- always have to keep your eye on the time as lunch times are much shorter than in North America. Historic guild building is lovely inside. Lunch was served on the top floor in a bright flower filled room with views onto a city square. Pris fixe lunches about $50 Canadian. Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. Started with an excellent mushroom soup and had a beef Bourgogne entree. Could have been hotter and some of the meat was a bit tough. Delicious homemade ice cream for dessert. Good service and very comfortable. Made for a very refreshing break in a day full of lots of walking.

if you in Zürich and looking for something real special, then you right here.
You may choose from exquisite swissfish to international kitchen.
Also the view from the window is amazing.
